AirAsia - low fare, no frills regional carrier


Since AirAsia introduced its low fare, no frills concept in December 2001, the airline now flies to over 60 destinations in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, China, Philippines, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar, formed 2 successful joint ventures in Thailand through Thai AirAsia, and Indonesia through Indonesia AirAsia, expanded its fleet from the original two to twenty eight, and revolutionized air travel in these country by offering incredibly low fares through its innovative sales channels. To date the AirAsia group, has carried over 35 million guests.

 


In August 2003, AirAsia became the first airline in the world to introduce mobile booking where guests can now book their seats, check flight schedules and obtain latest updates on AirAsia promotions from the convenience of their mobile phones. AirAsia also recently introduced Go Holiday, the airline's online programme where guests can book holiday packages online in real time.

AirAsia began regional flights in November 2003, by introducing flights to Phuket, in Thailand. The airline quickly extended flights to Bangkok, and later Hat Yai from KL International Airport. Flights to Indonesia commenced in April 2004 with routes serving Bandung, Surabaya, and Jakarta from KL International Airport. Subsequently the airline also introduced flights to Bali, Medan and Padang. AirAsia made history in Bandung, when it became the first low fare, no frills airline to operate a direct flight between Bandung and Kuala Lumpur in April 2004.

In April 2005, the AirAsia Group became the first low fare, no frills airline to commence services between Bangkok and Xiamen, in China, and Clark (the Philippines) from Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu.

 

AirAsia is also now a public listed company on the Malaysia Stocks Exchange ( Bursa Malaysia), after having on 22 November 2004, successfully orchestrated one of the largest public offering in Malaysia and raised a whopping RM 717.4 million for its future expansion.

On 23 of March 2006, AirAsia successfully moved its operations to the new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT). This is a major milestone as it is the first dedicated terminal for low cost carrier operations in the world. The LCCT is designed to cater for 10 million passengers per annum with 30 parking bays for aircraft. It is upgradeable to cater for 15 million passengers if required. This terminal provides us with numerous cost saving opportunities as well as a more efficient operation.
